UTA, WTS (Women in Transportation Seminar) and the Transportation YOU program, recently brought a group of junior high and high school girls from the Salt Lake Center for Science Education Charter School to participate in a lab experience on campus in the Civil department.
The group visited the Traffic and the Earthquake Mobile Labs. During the Traffic Lab tour they had the opportunity learn about different tools used by traffic and transportation engineers. The Earthquake Mobile Lab tour gave the group a hands on experience on the causes and implications of earthquake faulting and soil liquefaction as well as the types of damage caused following large, earthquake events.
Outreach in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department aims to introduce interested students in civil engineering and related STEM careers. If you would like more information on this please continue to the College of Engineering website.
